The purpose of the Environmental Law Society is to expose the Law School community to environmental law and policy issues through volunteer events. ELS also hopes to educate law students in how to conserve energy and the environment, what students can do to help, and what legal opportunities and careers are out there.
The Society performs community service activities related to environmental education and protection, sponsors Law School events to focus awareness on environmental issues, maintains an information board presenting news articles on current local, state, national, and world environmental issues and hosts speakers and discussions. In past years, the Society has hosted rafting trips, organized guided hikes, cleaned a stretch of highway and brought Erin Brockovich to speak at the Law School.
This student organization is currently inactive for the 2017-18 academic year. If you are interested in activating it, please contact Mary Beth Aber, Cocurricular Programs Coordinator.
